. andrew jackson basically ended its charter. there's a long history of mistrust in parts of the united states about the central bank and what it does. back in the derickson and hamilton days, a lot of the farm state bankers did not trust the first bank of the united states. -- back in the days of jefferson and hamilton. there is a federal reserve board in washington made up of seven governors and chairman who is ben bernanke. then there are 12 regional fed banks. they're all part of this federal reserve system. the regional fed bank, every chartered bank of the united states has to pay in capital to the federal reserve banks and in return they get a dividend. but these are not banks the way we think of commercial banks. the federal reserve bank of new york is not like citigroup out there trying to earn big profits to return to shareholders. their job is to manage the money supply. it is also to be a lender of last resort in a crisis, which is what the federal reserve did in 2007. when there is a run on a bank, when depositors flee the banking system because they are scared their money
night there was a special election. it was in a democratic seat to replace jesse jackson. a lot of people are scoffing about it. conservatives immediately because michael bloomberg went in. there was a candidate that was in a competitive race who was supported by the nra. bloomberg came in. and it changed everything overnight. >> he did. and he spent, i believe, $2 million on that race in a media market like chicago in a race at this level, $2 million is a lot of money. it's a lot of money anywhere. but coming in at the last minute and flood, saturate the airwaves with advertising in support of her and, you know, look. we talked about this a couple days before on the program. the mayor is a dangerous man in american politics right now for people who want to fight this battle. >> yeah, whatever you want to spend on trying to advocate for guns, he will triple, double, quadruple, he will spend more. >> he's got a limitless bank account, and as i said the other day, a lot of really smart political advisors who know that they want him to have an impact. and he cares about this. he's
that were doing desk duty in the police department, bring them out. reverend jesse jackson's marching. reverend acry and the ministers. i think a lot of people that were concerned has escalated concerns. i think it's got to lead to the whole national drive that many of us are in around gun control. >> but here's what's so interesting. let's look at the city of chicago where this is a horrific really crime wave for the past year plus. this is a city that doesn't have gun shops. it does not have gun ranges. it has some of the toughest laws. so why is that not working? >> that is exactly why you need national laws. because in the city of chicago there are no gun shops. in the city of chicago there are strict gun laws. but 20% of the guns confiscated in chicago come from a gun shop right outside of chicago. so unless you have national laws, you are not going to be able to do it with just local municipal laws because you can't build walls around the city. 20% of the guns they find come from one gun shop, which is just a couple of miles outside of the city limits. if you had national legisl

second amendment rights is trying to win a special election to fill the seat vacated by jesse jackson, jr. and this is right in president obama's hometown back yard, outside of chicago. we're hearing reports she's facing strong opposition from members of her own party for being a pro gun lawmaker. and joining me debby who would like be the congresswoman from chicago. >> hello thank you for having me. >> megyn: we're told that david axelrod, a spokesperson from president obama's campaign and supported you in the congressional runs, turning against you because of your stance on the second amendment and it's not like you are pro gun on every issue, you want stronger background checks, but you're not completely in line with their policies and boy, have they turned on you. your thoughts on it? >> and it's not just them. i think what started it is billionaire mayor from new york coming in with 1.3 million dollars in ads over the last couple of weeks and i think it's not fair that the mayor from new york coming in to buy a house race. and he has, you know, thought that he and everybody else coul

under way in chicago right now for the seat formerly held by jesse jackson. one of the candidates running for that seat dropped out of the race after new york city mayor michael bloomberg got involved in the campaign. bloomberg's pac got another money behind another candidate robbie kelly. hutchinson had support from the nra. how significant, is it, do you think for the mayor of new york city to get involved in a race in chicago, illinois? what does that tell us? >> it's extraordinarily significant but i have to say it's about time. if you've got millions of dollars flowing through washington and municipalities throughout the country from the nra, the pro-gun control hobby has been hobbled a number of years. great advocacy organizations but the dollars just don't match up, so it's a good thing, i think, to point out record of some of these candidates in this case. the difficulty here is, you know, this race is so crowded, so crowded. that david halverson who has a 100% rating by this nra, she could run away with this race because there are too many candidates in this race. >> you'
jackson, mississippi. jason, republican caller. caller: thank you. there is a couple of really somewhat offensive and i think -- i need further explanation and so do the listeners. the claim was stated moments ago about title v and saying it is clearly needed. an example is, for instance, more than 50% of white voters in mississippi voted for president obama. that is a fallacy. the claim does not support the supposition. what is the proof, then, without the biases? to understand the nature of political bias? from these claims, the heritage fellow stated, real claims against alabama have not been present or credible. so i don't understand why it's sort of makes me think i am listening to a radio show from 1950 when in fact it is 2013. host: we go to mr. berman for a response to that. guest: in 2001 it was a majority black town in mississippi. but the governing board, the mayor, and the city council were all white. in 2001 when there was going to be elections and it was clear that black voters were going to be able to win seats in that election, the government canceled the election becaus

at the folks who are leaving his administration, the e.p.a.'s director, lisa jackson, she said the e.p.a.'s role is interestingly -- quote -- "to level the playing field against fossil fuels." secretary chu who is leaving the administration, said he must -- quote -- "boost the price of gasoline to the levels in europe." and secretary salazar who is leaving continues to talk about the fact that the energy strategy showed good results but they have restricted access to federal offshore and onshore oil and gas resources through moratoriums, through blocking permits, through leasing plans, they denied americans billions in public revenue and thousands of jobs. so i stand here saying that the keystone x.l. pipeline is a perfect example of the obama administration's pattern of delaying good projects by requiring excessive red tape. so i come here with you, the senator from north dakota and the senator from alaska, and look to you, the senator from north dakota, and thank you for your leadership, for your determination forks your, for yr fortitude, for you fighting to make sure that we as a
